Why Newspapers Arc Sent On.
Some newspaper subscribers wonder
why a publisher keeps on sending the
paper when the subscription hasexpir-
ed. When a paper is stopped prompt-
at the expiration of the subscription
it looks as if the editor doubted the
integrity of the subscriber, and nine
times out of ten the subscriber will
give the editor a calling down for in-
sinuating that his credit is not good.
This is not tlie case witli city papers,
for as a general thing their subscrib-
ers live a long way off and the pub-
lisher does not know them or their
financial standing, and hence, stops
the paper when the time for which it
is paid expires,
The base ball tournainenton the 12th
will be a big success, the weather per-
mitting. All the teams have been se-
cured and everything points to a sue
cessful day of sport. Hon. Frank
Mathews will l>e present and deliver
an address between the two afternoon
games. A league umpire will do the
umpiring and everything will be run
in tirst class shape. The music will
Ihj furnished by the Crescent Brass
Hand, which insures a first class mns-
ical entertainment. The whole day's
amusement will only cost just what it
usually costs to se*'one league game.
A skunk broke up a Christian
Science meeting down in Comanche
county the other night, according to
a reliable exchange in that section.
The leader of the meeting attempted
to convince bis followers that they
only imagined they smelled something
and if they just believed there was no
skunk present the oder would at once
vanish. But the skunk was stronger
than their Imagination and the meet-
ing broke up post haste.
The last thing we saw in the con-
vention hall at Guthrie, Saturday,
was editor Frank Grear standing on a
table. Ills jaws were working, but
we couldn't tell whether he was offer-
ing supplication or making a speech.
Anger was depicted on his counte-
An Ohio man has sued his wife for
a divorce because he alleges she made
the bed only three times during the
ten years of their married life. Fool-
ish man, does he expect a woman to
work herself to death making beds?
The election of Trapp to the office
of clerk of Logan county is almost a
certainly in November, The white
people of the county believe the time
for negro subjugation is at hand.
The new son of the Czar lias been
named Alexis Nikolivitch. The mea-
sles, whooping cough, colic, et al,
should have no terrors for a child that
can survive such a name as that.
The ring received an awful wallop
in the jaw, at (jutbrie, Saturday.
They may come to the scratch again,
but their utter annihilation in a short
time is inevitable.
The nominating of officers in the
future by the primary system by the
republicans is almost a certainty.
The convention, Saturday, made itso.
Every business man in town should
be represented in the advertising col-
unins of the Tribune. Let the out-
side world know what we have.
Boodle and politics will mix, after a
fashion, and is palatable to a negro,
but it is a concoction that is nauseat-
ing to a decent white man.
The editor of this paper was mistak-
en for a preacher the other day. Our
suspicion that a halo surrounds our
head, is continued.
At The World's Fair.
September 3, 4, 5and ti will be Ok-

Tliev say the price of negro votes in
Guthrie, Saturday, was$12.50. If the
colored man had more respect for his
integrity and honor, and thought less
of boodle, he might not be so despised
and rejected of men.
As the election approaches there
will probably be terms used that will
be hard to understand. That these
terms may be clearly understood we
copy the following from Puck's Dic-
Ax—An implement that was form-
erly held on the grindstone. See nose.
Barrel—The cause of the nomina-
tion of a vice president.
Bet—That which is Invaribly lost.
Candidate—Synonymous witli Nuis-
Colonel—A chronic office seeker witli
a red nose.

Corruptionist—The other fellow. See
boodler and offensive partisan.
Crank—The chap that doesn't be-
lieve as 1 do.
Eloquence—Gas. See spellbinder.
Floater—An independent American
who needs the money.
Handshake—An ante-election cere-
mony, meaning nothing.
Honest—An adjective often prefixed
to the name of a candidate to signify
that lie hadn't yet been caught at it.
Oblivion—'The abiding place of vice
Offensive partisan—She other fel-
low. See boodler and corruptionist.
Patriot—A person of strident voice.
Platform—A structure to get on,
not to stand on.
Political Death—Retiring on your
I^lump cheeks, flushed with the soft
glow of health and a pure complexion,
make all women beautiful. Take a
small dose of Ilerbine after each meal;
it will prevent constipation and help

Wm. M. Stroud, Midlothian, Texas,
writes, May 31, 1901: "We have used
Jierbine in our family for eight years,
and found it the best medicine we ever
used forconstipation, bilious fever and
